The model is inserted into a weighted globe for display. This model is in great condition, and will make a fine addition to any collection, or could bring some great memories of a beautiful aircraft! From the private collection of an engineer who worked on the F-86D at North American Aviation, Inc. It was showcased in an enclosed cabinet for many years. Model condition (and that of globe) is vintage appropriate, overall in wonderful condition.
As you can see from the photos, the box is a bit worn, especially on one corner. Made in Akron, Ohio by Topping Models, this now defunct company was known for its well-built commissioned aircraft models. This fantastic vintage model measures approximately 8 inches in length (from bottom of globe to tip of the nose), and its wingspan (nose to tail) is about 5 inches.
Verbiage on the globe reads F-86D Sabre Jet North American Aviation, Inc. From a pet and smoke-free home.
